PA Man Hooks Record-Breaking Striped Bass In Del.

Posted: Updated:

REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. (AP) - Delaware officials say a Pennsylvania man has hooked at 52-pound striped bass as part of the Delaware Sport Fishing Tournament, breaking a record set in 1978.
    
The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental control says Ben Smith of Bryn Mar, Pa., reeled in the fish Dec. 8 while fishing in the surf at Delaware Seashore State Park.
    
Smith's catch was measured and weighed with a certified scale.
    
Nathan Rust, Delaware Sport Fishing Tournament director, says the former state record of 51 pounds, 8 ounces was set in 1978.
